If you've been knee-deep in Christmas preparations for weeks and only now are catching a breath and beginning to think about New Year's, welcoming 1986 with a party may sound appealing, but the idea of spending the next two days in preparation probably doesn't.

Attention L.A. hipster-parents: New Year's Eve isn't just for grown-ups anymore. And apparently, neither is alternative comedy, that awkward, absurdist brand of humor so popular with the skinny jeans-and-cardigan crowd. So take note of "The Not Inappropriate Show" on Thursday afternoon at the Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre in Hollywood. The show is curated by Bob Odenkirk, one of the alternative-comedy scene's godfathers, and his talent-manager wife, Naomi, and features sketches written for adults but "not inappropriate" for kids.

Scrambling to accommodate its Big Gulp of an ensemble cast, for which disaster movie maven Irwin Allen would've killed, "New Year's Eve" does for its holiday what last year's "Valentine's Day" did for Valentine's Day. If this one's a hit, as was "Valentine's Day" ($200 million worldwide), surely we can expect "Presidents Day. " With nice cameos for actual ex-presidents. As with "Valentine's Day," the template for director Garry Marshall and screenwriter Katherine Fugate is "Love, American Style" except some of the plotlines interconnect.

The New Year's Eve party in Las Vegas ended up much more subdued than expected for the city's gaming companies--and a downright sobering event for their stockholders. Visitation to the Strip's big casino-hotels in late December fell far short of expectations, a situation that Wall Street had begun to sense early. Stock prices for the major operators began sliding in November and are still under pressure.
With one week left before a series of city-sponsored millennium festivals, less than half of the 92,000 free tickets for the event at Van Nuys Airport have been snatched up, but city officials believe demand will increase as the events draw near. Many tickets are still available for four other New Year's Eve festivals being hosted by the city as family-friendly, alcohol-free celebrations of the new millennium.

Lisa Sam is a freshman at New York's Hunter College with an interest in anthropology. Usually she also has an interest in cash, but when a desperate Brooklyn baby-sitting client offered her $300 to watch two children on this once-in-a-millennium New Year's Eve, Sam turned her down. "I told them I'd be available at any other time, but I'm going to hang out New Year's with some friends," she said. "My mom thought I was nuts." Not everyone is looking for a New Year's Eve sitter.
In the social hall of the Buena Park Senior Center, a group of seniors has plenty to say about Y2K, the new century and the new millennium. But most acknowledge they will most likely be in bed long before the stroke of midnight. While waiting for her husband to show up for lunch at the center, Madeline Walton, 73, proves that the years haven't affected her humor. "I came over to the U.S. on the Mayflower," says the Canadian native. "OK, would you believe the Titanic?"
